Portland, OR. “Your Gift. Our Future” was the theme of the 16th annual Jesuit High School Financial Aid Luncheon. JHS President Tom Arndorfer and Principal Paul Hogan (far right) welcomed luncheon alumnae speakers including Chrisleine Temple ’15, The Honorable Kate O’Scannlain ’95 and Anarghya Vardhana ’06. The benefit on October 10th in Jesuit’s Knight Center raised over $470,000 for financial aid. This school year alone, $3.2 million in need-based tuition assistance was awarded to 26% of students.
The Halton Family Foundation offered a challenge gift, which helped JHS reach its fundraising goal.
